NEW ORLEANS (June 11, 2013) — Two on Tap, performing at The National WWII Museum’s Stage Door Canteen from Friday, June 21 through Sunday, June 23, 2013, brings audiences back in time to the era when couples like Fred & Ginger and Mickey & Judy filled the silver screen with tight vocal harmony and precision tap choreography.
Classic songs, fantastic vocals, gorgeous costumes and exciting tap dancing mix for Two on Tap. Celebrated performers Melissa Giattino and Ron DeStefano pay tribute to the Great American Songbook and classic Broadway song-and-dance in this fun, lively and fast-paced show that gets crowds singing and dancing along from their seats. Featuring sensational new arrangements of standards like "I Got Rhythm" and "Yes Sir, That’s My Baby," as well as rousing favorites like "Sing, Sing, Sing" and "L-O-V-E," Two on Tap uses fresh, original choreography to show how classic song-and-dance still endures and entertains.
Based in New York City, Two on Tap features Melissa Giattino, a true triple-threat who made her Broadway debut in 42nd Street and was a member of the Radio City Rockettes, and Ron DeStefano, an award-winning tenor who showcased his skills at Lincoln Center and on the Broadway National Tour of Fiddler on the Roof. Together, they have an unmatched chemistry that crosses the footlights to create one unforgettable show.
A truly unique experience — Two on Tap features soaring vocals, spirited dance numbers, and a vibrant, modern trip down memory lane for audiences of all ages.
